"Seizing the Airwaves"

I thought members of this group would find the following post of interest.
It appeared today on rec.radio.noncomm (a usenet newsgroup).

(I'm not promoting this--I have no personal interest in this stuff, at
all--but, I thought it might relate to the "pirate" discussions that
frequently appear.)

be set up for this purpose.  Make sure the tape is ferrous oxide, not
chrome.  The high speed duplicator does not work with chrome, it eats the
heads due to the speed.
